Adults and Braces: Why Should You Take the Plunge??
The first, and most important reason: (and feel free to be done reading this posting, because you really need no other reasons) YOU DESERVE IT!
If you are still with us and would like to continue reading (thank you) let us provide you with some more reasons for pursuing orthodontic treatment.
If, when thinking about Orthodontic treatment, a picture similar to this:
comes to mind... its time to re-think your brace face.
Yes there are many many kids in orthodontic treatment. This is mainly due to the fact that The AAO (American Association of Orthodontists) recommends that children see an orthodontist no later than age 7, even if there are no problems. Because the jaw is still developing and it’s best to catch issues early.
And, bless their hearts, parents are usually so good about doing this. So good, in fact, that more often than not parents put aside their own need for Orthodontic care to make sure their kids are taken care of. If this is you... please stand, take a bow, pat yourself on the back... reward yourself. Because you are amazing. (please see our Pinterest board for two examples of parents who did just this).
No, it is not too late for you. Re-thinking your brace face yet? Maybe we can help. Take a look at these (very real and very famous) brace faces:
I'm seeing a trend in them. Are you? Oh yes- they are all adults! And if these famous people cannot convince you. Maybe this AMAZING website (we might be a little biased) can. Or maybe this one can.
The truth is that braces are not the same as they used to be. There are so many different types of braces, that you have options. And might we add that there are some new very discrete options (ahem Invisalign did we mention that we are premier preferred providers??).
So, the choice is yours. And boy do you have a lot of them. But you no longer have any excuses. You deserve to look and feel your best, no matter what age you are. Take the plunge and call us today so we can get you on your way to your new, life-changing smile!!
